How to Design a Landscape 

The most important thing to remember when choosing your landscape design is to do what you like — it is your yard, after all. Incorporate edging into your flower beds and in your lawn to keep weeds at bay and create a crisp, clean visual barrier. Utilize hardscape, or stepping stones, to create a functional pathway that breaks up the rest of your landscape plan. Use plants with bright foliage, such as ones with colored leaves, to help your green shrubbery come to life. Keep texture in mind when choosing your plants and flowers. For example, Black Lace Elderberry is a fun counterpoint to Evergreen Box Wood. Mix annuals, perennials, and shrubs with other landscape ideas to design a garden that is visually interesting and easy to design. [Source: BHG.com]
